    @Bob_Luken Thanks I’m happy to share if we can all take something from it.  I told two other guys that were given the others.  I felt bad breaking the news but when they saw the pics, they were very thankful I told them.

    I was thinking about the tar builup and seems like I might have posted a pic. I didn't find any thread that I had posted but I did find someone else's thread with a pic that looked just like what happened to me, and according to my reply this person's occurrence happened before mine did but even then my speculation involved tobacco beetles. LOL

    Here's a link to that thread ,.....

    Yikes!  That’s is pretty gross!  Did you have holes in the cigar that showed any evidence of beetles?

    This suggests it may be excess sap that didn't evaporate during curing. Sounds plausible. I've had it happen a couple times.

    I think I've had it happen at least once.

    Nope. But cigars can have tiny tiny eggs on the tobacco during production that hatch while inside the cigar once it gets warm enough for them to hatch and the larvae stage happens unseen. Later, when they transform into beetles, they bore their way out to mate and lay eggs. (As I understand it.)

    Now that this thread has officially been high jacked along with my imagination I may never smoke another cigar. Thanks @Yakster .  


    JK. I’ll smoke them anyway!

    I may have gotten some facts wrong in my previous post. I know there are four stages in their life cycle, egg, larvae, pupa, and adult. And I know the larvae are responsible for the major damage. But after reconsidering my earlier post, and doing a little googling, I have some unanswered questions.
     
    Does the pupa stage occur inside the cigar?
    Do the adults bore holes? 
    I have read that the adults do not feed but will drink liquids, so if the pupa stage does occur inside the cigar, does that mean adults do not bore holes and instead exit through holes already made by larvae?

    Still googling.

    Continuing the tar hijack: about 10 posts down, I experienced it with an Edgar Hoil.  Ruined my night.

    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.
